Clear Your Abdomen
As I have said, the abdomen is an important area. It is where we harbor our emotions. Clearing this area is a necessary part of moving toward better health. For today's meditation, try this:
Lie, sit, or stand comfortably. Bring your hands together, palms slightly more apart but facing each other, in front of your lower Tan Den. Take a deep breath again into your lower Tan Den. Allow it to fill all three and from here sound the sounds of "Su-A-Wa" until you complete the breath.
While you are doing this for five minutes, pay attention to the feeling between your hands. Quiet your thoughts. Relax your body. Now you have completed your sound meditation.
Place your hands that are brimming with vital energy on your abdomen. Let your fingertips walk the mid-line from pubic bone to sternum. Then from navel to each side. Now explore the edges of the abdomen in a clockwise fashion. With your charged palms, press around the soft parts of the abdomen.
Should you find an overly soft part, hold that place for a moment. Should you find an overly hard part, hold that place momentarily. This should take a minute or two.
When you finish, take a moment to experience and note how you feel. How does it compare to yesterday and the days previous?
Thank you for joining me today. Let your day unfold and be present in the moment.
In good health,
